Nahwand 265 210 אתה אל כביר Raphael Tabbush The initials at the beginning of each stanza form the acrostic 'Ani Refael'. The song talks about Israel's redemption. The beginning of the pizmon has the composer turning to God to ask for mercy. The composer says that he will not stop praying until his prayers are accepted. He prays for the redemption of the Jewish people, the gathering of the exile, and returning to the Land of Israel. Tabbush Manuscript E. Sayegh

Bayat 319 246 מעזי אז כלה קץ Raphael Tabbush Shalosh Regalim. Ma'Uzi, meaning 'the source of our strength', was composed to be sung during the three festivals when we are commanded to rejoice. It is based on Psalms 42-43 which are said throughout the Sukkot holiday. The words of the pizmon, like Psalms 42-43, are clearly tinged with longing, melancholy, and even pain. They remind us of the times when our hopes were raised, when we thought that redemption was at hand, only to have those hopes crushed. Only at the end does it conclude with hope of returning to the temple in the future during the three festivals. Commentary on Pizmon Vital Israel
